The Savute Elephant Camp (www.savuteelephantcamp.com) is situated on the banks of the Savute channel. It’s a mystery - no one knows why it flows for several decades and then suddenly stops, sometimes for decades. It stopped flowing in 1982 and then one January morning in 2010 it started again, making the camp an instant waterfront property. Savute Elephant Camp includes some l5 tent tents that on the inside look and feel like boutique hotel rooms. Each one has a deck with a hammock. They’re clustered around a main building, roofed but without walls. It’s a combination dining room, lounge and meeting place. Everywhere in the camp local materials are used - wood, straw, stone; even the chandelier is made of ostrich eggs.
